I wrote Elegy (to those we lost) during the pandemic month of May 2020, when it became clear that the toll of covid-19 on human lives was truly devastating. I hope through this short work that listeners can find a space of solace to reflect, remember and mourn those we have lost — known or unknown to us, and allow us to find compassion to share this time as brothers and sisters together.
